Love It or Leave It

Fellow Americans,

July 4, 2019, was an outstanding day in America!  President Donald Trump honored our military and our founders during the Independence Day celebration in Washington D.C.  As our president hosted the public event to celebrate America, the greatest country on earth, the mainstream media refused to broadcast the event and instead criticized it!  Some in the media claimed this was just a political stunt.  Others said the military show of force was arrogant.  Still others insisted the event was too costly and a waste of government resources.  That’s garbage and here’s why. 

President Trump never mentioned his campaign or any political opponent during the celebration.  He proudly stood in the rain and told the story of the founding of our nation.  He told of the sacrifices of our military from the revolutionary days to present.  He honored our troops and their families.  WHAT’S WRONG WITH THAT?  President Trump, like many true Americans, is proud of our country.  Furthermore, America should not be embarrassed to remind other countries that by the grace of God we saved their bacon several times throughout history!  As far as being costly, the critics have a point.  The fireworks alone cost $750,000.  Here’s the kicker: the fireworks were donated!  That’s right, we, the people were invited to a FREE fireworks display at our Capitol.  WHAT’S WRONG WITH THAT?  But if these malcontents insist, let’s talk about costs.  Let’s talk about the $25 million that was spent on the phony Russia collusion investigation!  Let’s talk about the cost of all the free stuff the Democrats want to give to everyone, including illegal aliens!  And to the critics of the parade I ask: if we can have gay pride parades, black lives matter parades, and anti-fascist parades, then why can’t we have military parades?  I bet if Barack Hussein Obama had hosted this event the mainstream media would have glorified him and hailed it a huge success!    

Sadly, there are people in this country who hate Donald Trump and our Constitution.  There are people in the media, Hollywood, academia, professional sports, and politics who want to see America fail.  If America is so unjust, so unfair, so terrible, then why don’t they leave?  I’ll tell you why.  It is because they know they are lying about how horrible it is.  They know there is no other country on earth they would rather live because there is no other government on earth that guarantees more freedom and opportunity than America!  That explains why so many people from all over the world want to come here, not leave here!

Please pray for our country, our president, and our elected representatives.  Please learn about our founding and then teach others the lessons of liberty.  Also, please go to and read the article The Era of the Ungrateful American.  May God bless you and the United States of America!
